Once on the coast path you will be rewarded during various climbs and falls by stunning sea and coastal views before dropping down to the WW2 Gun Batteries at Froward Point. A long climb up away from the coast where you will be tempted to stop and look at the views behind is followed by a drop back down through the fields that brings you to the final stretch up through the gardens of one of the top five National Trust gardens in the UK (you can always appreciate on your cool down!). Certainly a beautiful one for your spectators even if it kills you!
